According to reports coming from China, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will start selling in China during week 15 of this year, which falls on week two of April, with potential sales in the U.S. set for the 14th of the same month – same week as China.
The latest report comes from the same tipster who previously claimed that the Galaxy S8 and S8+ will ship with two RAM and storage options of 4GB/6GB and 64GB/128GB. Now, other than confirming that the S8 will be released in mid-April, just like previous rumors have pointed out, the new report also adds that those in China will be able to buy the 6GB RAM option in both storage options. This means you get either 6GB RAM and 64GB storage or 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, hopefully with support for microSD card storage on the duo.
Keep in mind that this is just a tip and is not word from Samsung, so take it with a little skepticism. Still, it would make sense Samsung focusing the 6GB RAM variant of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in China due to the nature of the market. In China, smartphones started using 6GB RAM ages ago and in fact, there is an 8GB RAM phone in the market already – ASUS ZenFone AR.
As for other markets, the 6GB RAM variant might remain scarce, but the 4GB RAM variant should be easy to come by.
